OK, so this is my first post here. I was hoping some of you experts can recommend me a pair of headphones. I'm nowhere near an audiophile and I don't know too much about the different brands and whatnot. I've read up a bunch of reviews and stuff, but it's hard for me to make an informed decision since I'm a bit of a noob at this whole hi-fi business.
I'm looking to get a pair of headphones - the over the ear type. Now, I'm willing to spend a fair amount - maybe up to $300/400 or something, give or take. They will spend most (if not all) of their time being plugged into an mp3 player, iphone or my laptop. I don't need or want an amp, so I'm looking for a set that will work great without one.
One of the main things I'm looking for is comfort. I've been using a cheap pair of HD202's and while they sound alright, they're terribly uncomfortable. My ears kinda stick out a bit too and watching a movie with these things is oftentimes a painful experience. I want a really comfortable pair. I'm undecided whether I want closed or open ones, so I'm pretty open to either one. But I do appreciate good bass and having minimal leakage would be a plus. Also, if they have the wire coming from one side (and not both), that'd be better, I guess.
Any and all input will be highly appreciated.
